    Does that prove how weak the HW division is?

    No, he's a beast. Certainly more deserving than the 2-1 pro wrestler.

    He’s young, best base (wrestling) for MMA, always improving, has good physical traits - size and reach

    It would be proof that an already weak division has gotten much weaker.

    It's proof the matchmakers aren't doing their job.

    His hands are shite. He will be butchered on the feet against guys like Stipe or DC who know how to stuff a takedown.

    Than when? When Cain Velasquez was beating the likes of Zombie Nog and Ben Rothwell and was considered HW GOAT? For like 4 years there was no legitimate HWs aside from Cain and JDS. Before that was the Lesnar/Frank/Carwin era... and before that was the Timmeh/Couture era.

    You would have to go back like 13 years for a stacked/prime HW roster... and it wasn’t even in UFC

    It would be proof that the heavyweight champ looks like Mr. Potatohead.

    Please see the first reply of this thread for reference.

    I didn't think he was that good after watching him fight mark hunt. But he showed big improvement vs overeem

    Lol. Blaydes is young, talented and fucking awesome. He improves by large margin with every fight. That takedown on reem was pure masterpiece. If I have to pick anyone for the next champ after Stipe retires, its him. Dude is the beast.

    Do you even need proof for that?

    Fire USADA. Make heavyweight great again.

    No. Blaydes is a very good fighter. Still young, with the potential to improve more. He wouldn't be a weak champ.

    He's a good wrestler who's getting much better every fight. Him being champ wouldn't surprise me at all. Wrestling + Size will always be a combination to kick ass with.

    Curtis Blaydes is one of the guys breathing new life into the hw division, which is more interesting now than it has been since Junior and Cain came on the scene. Heavyweight is awesome.
